Hi everyone,
I'm new to Fiat Coupe ownership, well I will be come Friday. My car's value - 20V - is about £1000. As it's going to be used for less than 3,000 miles I'll be going with agreed value cover. Footman James quote is £225, parked in the driveway, location Suffolk. Does this sound a reasonable amount?
Hope this post is in the correct location!
Many thanks,
Andrew

Hi Andrew and welcome.

Admittedly I've no idea what condition your coupé is in but 1k for agreed value sounds quite modest?

There are currently arrangements with Hagerty and Lancaster also re agreed value along with club member discount so you might want to feel them out as comparison...

Thanks for the reply. Tried Hagerty, they were over £300.

Thanks. Just phoned ClassicLine the insurer of my current classic car and their price is £151.75, so I've gone with them. It's such a good price because I now in effect have a multi policy. Apparently it will go up by about 20% when renewal comes as it will be my only classic car.

That's good. I used ClassicLine for a couple of years as their rates were good, but their most recent quote was ridiculously higher so ended up with Adrian Flux.

I have just renewed with FJ for the sixth year but also included the Barchetta into the policy. Coupe now after some checking and reviewing had a agreed value upped 50% from last year after getting the bodywork done basis present market values of restored examples and as the B is under resto and being the super rare Riviera had an agreed value placed the same as the coupe last year for £231 for both cars, both agreed values, RAC and full salvage rights, both garaged, both on limited 3000 miles a year.

I checked with others commonly known and they do not compare in my opinion.

2000 Rosso Alfa 916 Spider 2.0 T.S Lusso ( Under Restoration)

ClassicLine renewal quote came through at £156, just £5 more than last year. 3,000 miles, garaged, agreed value £3,500, so will be renewing. Next year, after a bit more paintwork has been refreshed will ask for an agreed value increase.

I have gone for the Flex cover with Footman - covers the Coupe and my main car (Mazda 3 sport nav - worth around 7K). 10K agreed value on the coupe, unlimited mileage/year (its only done 62K), RAC cover for both with homestart, £605 (combined).
